The Luminary Initiative, started by MarineParents.com, has been a major contributor towards honoring Gold Star families since 2007. The mission of the Luminary Initiative is to urge individuals, families, and organizations nationwide to light luminaries at dusk on the last Sunday in September, Gold Star Family Day, to honor our fallen heroes.
On the evening of Sunday, September 29, 2019, military supporters across the country came together to show their respect for Gold Star family members and to keep the memories of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our nation alive.
We want to thank everyone who took the time to light a luminary. Each event, big or small, had an enormous impact on the lives of Gold Star Families.
